Charney uses computer models to forecast environmental change to guide conservation of sensitive species and ecosystems, and shape how conservation planning is approached within the urban environment. Charney has modeled the impacts of climate change on Galapagos plants and tortoises; forecast and mapped future tree growth across North America; and untangled the ecology, evolution, and management challenges of unisexual salamanders.
